THE German International Development Cooperation Agency (GIZ) has announced the release of an estimated US$13 million to finance sectoral development in Zambia.
GIZ Country Director, Helmout Hauschild confirmed the development saying the funds will go towards the implementation of various developmental programs in three provinces.
Mr Hauschild assured that the German government will ensure that the various developmental programs are funded and implemented in order to strengthen existing programs aimed at improving the welfare of rural communities in Zambia.
“The continued bilateral cooperation between Germany and Zambia through his organisation will continue to facilitate for the transfer of skill and best practices essential in advancing sustainable development,“ he said.
The funding is part of the cooperating partners to assist the government’s efforts towards the agenda 2030 solely aimed at making Zambia a middle income.
